Most recently in 2021, International Commission made a strategic decision to focus on North America and Stephen participated in one of the first U.S. based projects in Western Missouri.

2022 has been a transition year for him. In March 2022, he accepted the position of Area Coordinator VP for North America for International Commission and will work to organize short-term mission trips in the U.S., Canada and all North America.
